Ljubljana is a city best experienced at a casual rate, taking in the breathtaking architecture, sitting with a coffee, and enjoying the street music. Although it is a capital city with many hostels, do not expect a spawling city and long hikes from attraction to attraction, the city only has a population of 300,000.
Ljubljana does not suffer from the tourist crush many other capitals experience in the high season. It is still preferable to visit this city after September as the city comes to ice when its student population returns. Locals say that the city is empty during it's summer months, missing the music and people that take its experience from a 8/10 to a 10/10.
The city is small enough that most Ljubljana hostels are located within its downtown core. They seem to mainly cluster around the joint train and bus station north of the main square and river. The nightlife of Ljubljana tends to follow the river, so if you want to be within minutes of the action you may want to look for a hostel advertised as south of the station, although you would be hardpressed to find a hostel more than 20 minutes walk away.

HI - Ljubljana Youth Hostel / Bit Center Hotel
"HI - Ljubljana Youth Hostel / Bit Center Hotel is the type of place you stay for one night. It is very cheap, but a bus ride out of town, and very basic in terms of amenities. It's right next door to a gym if you feel like improving your fitness. The Location The hostel is really one level of a building that is dedicated to a fitness centre. It's hard to find because it doesn't look anything like a hostel. Even the rooms are obviously...
"For an HI hostel, this place is quite nice. It's about a 10 minute walk from the train/bus station and another 10 to the town center. The reception is open 24 hours and the owners are nice (assuming they understand what you are asking). Internet is free if you wait to get on it. There is no real common room, though there are benches outside and a basketball court. Apparently, the buildings are student dormitories during the school year....

"Fluxus Hostel is fabulous. It is not big at all and actually feels more like a big comfortable apartment. The two rooms with bunk beds connect to each other so it is easy to quickly meet everyone staying in the hostel. Other than the two big rooms with bunk beds there is a small room with a double bed and its own bathroom. There is a communal kitchen which has a small table and a television and is stocked with the basic supplies you...
"The Location More like a home away from home than a hostel, Most Hostel is a cosy nook in the heart of Ljubljana, overlooking Ljubljanica river and Zmajski Most (Dragon Bridge). The quiet neighbourhood is safe, especially for a lone female, and close to bars, cafes, the open market, and boutique shops. Allow a good twenty-minute walk from the bus station with a heavy pack. Walk along Resljeva street and turn left when you get to Dragon...

"Better to avoid - I am staying at the hostel at this very moment, and must say that I am deeply disappointed. For start, I must say that it's not only my experience I am conveying here, but also that of a friend of mine who is staying down the hall at this very moment, in a bigger room (for 4 people) while I am staying in a "standard twin private en-suite". Do not be fooled, "private en-suite" does not mean you will have the bathroom all to...

Ljubljana Travel Tips & Suggestions
Ljubljana is one of the most surprising cities in Europe! I arrived there with no idea of what that city was about and I felt in love with it! It is a small city, easily walkable, and perfect to hire a bike and get lost into its pretty, cozy streets. There's music, artisans, and artists in every corner. There is good food at reasonable prices, super kind people, and lots and lots of party! You can choose between relaxing cafés, cool pubs, high level discos, and, for me, the best atmosphere in Ljubljana -- Metelkova street. If you like underground style -- but the real one -- and meeting interesting people, just go there! I totally enjoyed it! I wish I lived in Ljubljana just to party in Metelkova every weekend!
This is the shittiest city with the most rude people possible!
Ljubljana is an amazing city. Much of the old world charm is in this quaint little place. Yet it also caters to the international tourist market. There are plenty of souvenirs and gifts to choose from -- the toys for kids are a little bit pricey though. The delicacies that are available in the open market are great for gifts. For those who want music, booze, and kitsch art, check out Metelkova City.
I loved Ljubjana. The old town reminded me of a mini Prague with the buildings all having so much character and charm. I found the people of Ljubljana to be very friendly and helpful, though I would suggest being careful when getting in a taxi. Agree on a fare before you start your journey as I was charged massive amounts for small trips. Ljubljana is a re-freshing city as you can walk straight into an enchanting woodland area from the old town. Another thing I noticed was the welcome lack of tourists! This is a positive feature, especially when I think to how places like Rome, Vienna, Prague, Salzburg, and London get.
Ljubljana is a lovely city. Accommodation wasn't too cheap, but most everything else was. Totally non threatening. I though the nightlife was a bit limited. Well worth 2 or 3 days. Easy to get to Bled, or train to Zagreb or further. Much more a local city than an international destination.
Ljubjana is a wonderful city. It is clean, compact, and has gorgeous architecture. It is an amazing combination of East meets West and old and new. There is a castle upon a hill overlooking gorgeous new achitecture. You can eat Mexican food or smoke hookah at a Morroccan-inspired bar or you can see a traditional Eastern European church. The city is compact, so you can walk everywhere and the people, while reserved, are polite and they all speak English. The best thing about Ljubjana is that it is not yet touristy.
Ljubljana is a great place to visit for short-break. It really does live up to it's tag of "Little Ljubljana" as the town is very compact and if you are not planning to visit any museums, you can easily walk around and see all of the sights in one day. It is very centrally located in Slovenia though so there are many day trips that could be made from the town. I would say that within a couple of hours in any direction from Ljulbjana you would be close to Slovenia's borders. One of the easiest places to get to is Bled. A bus leaves the main bus station and takes about one and a half hours. The buses are often busy in summer so it's advisable to book in advance – the staff at the station speak very good English. The lake at Bled is very picturesque and a walk around it would take a couple of hours. Vintgar Gorge also a good place to visit, but it's a bit of a trek to get there if you miss the tourist bus which leaves Bled at about 9:30 a.m. and returns before lunch.
Ljubljana is a nice capital city to relax in. You'll probably want to stay near the old town, as the rest of the city is pretty standard stuff. Try the walking tours from near the tourist center and also look for the antique sales that line the river on weekends. There are free concerts/events occasionally in the summer as well (every night in 2003) - very fun.
